On the 02/03/2009, I was picked up from my house at about 11am by 4 persons who identified themselves as CID.They claimed they were investigating a post on Molotov Cocktails that I had posted on the forum Stomp. With regards to this particular allegation, I wish to state that I had posted an article on Molotov Cocktails on Stomp sometime late last year. The article was copied and pasted from Wikipedia, and was posted up for information value due to its appearance in the popular game Left 4 Dead. 2-3 weeks AFTER I posted the article, the MP Seng Han Thong got burnt. Apparently, someone made a police report that I had instigated the old man to burn the MP, via posting that article.
I was driven back to Cantonment Complex and subjected to an interrogation by these persons. Chief among them was 1 who identified himself as Sebastian, supposedly from the ISD.

To those who claimed to "celebrate bloggers' independent voices" (Blogout! ’09), "dedicated to protecting its members" (Association of Bloggers (Singapore)) — are you now going to swallow your own slogans?"

I have an important message for those who blame our esteemed Minister Wong Kan Seng for this incident. I put the blame squarely on the members of the Opposition. Here's why:
WKS as minister cannot possibly know the detention center that well - you expect minister to inspect every toilet there? You expect the minister to train every guard? He has already apologised and taken responsibility. However, the members of the Opposition are the ones I blame for this mess.
A number Opposition members have been detained under the ISA and know this detention center inside out. They probably are familiar with the toilet used by Mas Selamat and the security flaws in the detention center - the redoctrination that purges them of harmful thoughts can temporarily increase the urge to escape. Knowing that the govt was detaining terrorist there, why didn't they point out the possible ways of escape to the govt? ...I don't think the Opposition has any valid reasons for denying responsibility for the escape, many have been detained there over the years and they spend more time there than almost anyone else.

Razak, who was a vocal critic of Singapore although he insisted that he was not anti-Singapore, was again in the public eye in 1997 when he exposed remarks by Senior Minister Lee Kuan Yew about Johor in an affidavit against former Workers Party member Tang Liang Hong.
In the court document, Lee had described Johor as "notorious for shootings, muggings and carjacking".
